Sweet Potato Pie
3 small to medium sweet potatoes
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups of granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter, melted
1 cup of evaporated milk or heavy cream
1 ½ TBS cinnamon
1 ½ TBS nutmeg
½ cup of orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 teaspoon white sugar for dusting
2 deep dish pie crusts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into cubes. Place in a large pot with enough water to cover and boil until tender. Place potatoes in a bowl with eggs and butter. Beat with a mixer for 2 minutes. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar and milk while continuing to beat. Then add the cinnamon, nutmeg, orange juice and vanilla. Blend well.
Prick sides and bottom of pie crusts with a fork and sprinkle with 1 tsp of sugar. Place in the oven for about 5 minutes until the crust is lightly browned or puffed a little. Let cool. Next, pour the mixture into pie crust and bake for 40-50 minutes or until done when a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. Cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate. Serve with whipped cream. Enjoy!
